DESCRIPTION

The Ferrari 308 GTB berlinetta and targa topped 308 GTS are V8 mid-engined, 2-seater sports cars manufactured by the Italian company Ferrari from 1975 to 1985. The 308 replaced the Dino 246 GT and GTS in 1975 and was updated as the 328 in 1985. The similar 208 GTB and GTS were equipped with a smaller initially naturally aspirated, later turbocharged 2-litre engine, and sold mostly in Italy.

 

The 308 had a tube frame with separate body. The 308 GTB/GTS and GT4 were mechanically similar, and also shared much with the original Dino. Both 308s sit on the same tube platform, however the GT4—being a 2+2—has a longer wheelbase. The engine was a V8 of a 90 degree configuration, with belt-driven twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. It was transversely mounted in unit with the transaxle transmission assembly, which was below and to the rear of the engine's sump. All models used a fully synchromesh 5-speed manual and a clutch-type limited slip differential. Suspension was all-independent, comprising double wishbones, coaxial coil springs and hydraulic dampers, and anti-roll bars on both axles; four wheel vented disc brakes were also fitted. Steering was unassisted rack and pinion.

 

The 308's body was designed by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti, who had been responsible for some of Ferrari's most celebrated shapes to date such as the Daytona, the Dino and the Berlinetta Boxer. The 308 used elements of these shapes to create something very much in contrast with the angular GT4. GTS models featured a removable roof panel with grained satin black finish, which could be stowed in a vinyl cover behind the seats when not in use.

 

This lovely example was supplied by Colmore Depot,Birmingham ( order number F338 ) in 1979 where it was originally finished in Rosso Chiaro / Nero. This 308 is 1 of just 211 steel Bodied Carburettor GTB's fitted with a dry sump from the factory. With many bills and receipts going back to the early 80s this car has always been serviced and maintained by Ferrari dealers or specialists. In 1984 coinciding with the launch of the 288 GTO, Nigel Mansell Sports Cars updated the car to a 288 GTO front grill, spotlights, fitted enamel Scuderia shields pressed into the wings and a vented bonet. From factory this car was fitted with the option compromotive split rear rim wheels.

 

Now finished in Rosso Corsa with Crema interior, this car has just finished a full mechanical detail in our workshops, including engine out detail, major service, suspension rebuild and powder coating and brake system rebuild. A very rare car supplied with all of the early history from the Maranello archives still retaining 'YIJ 308' which has been with the car for over 30 years.
